    • When washing your knitwear pieces, it's important to wash them one at a time to avoid any colour mixing.
    • You should never wring or scrub your wool knitwear as this can cause pilling and stretching.: It's important not to hang your knitwear and wool sweaters to dry as this will cause stretching. If your knitwear needs to be reshaped, do this while it is still damp.
    • If you are storing your knitwear away for the summer, put a sachet of lavender in with it, this will keep any little bugs away!

     

                                        

    Aran stitches are traditional patterns used in Aran knitting, originating from the Aran Islands off the west coast of Ireland. These stitches are renowned for their intricate designs and symbolic meanings. Some common Aran stitches include:

    1.  Cable Stitch: This stitch resembles twisted ropes or cables and symbolizes the ropes used by fishermen. It represents a wish for a fruitful catch and safety at sea.

    2.  Diamond Stitch: The diamond stitch symbolizes the small, fertile fields of the Aran Islands and is often associated with prosperity and success in farming.

    3.  Honeycomb Stitch: This stitch resembles the honeycomb of bees and represents hard work, diligence, and the rewards of labor.

    4.  Basket Stitch: The basketweave stitch mimics the woven patterns of baskets and symbolizes the fisherman's basket, representing a wish for a bountiful catch.

    5.  Trinity Stitch: Also known as the Blackberry or the Bramble stitch.  Holy Trinity: The name "Trinity stitch" itself suggests a connection to the Christian concept of the Holy Trinity—Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. In this interpretation, the three-dimensional texture created by the stitch may symbolize the unity and interconnectedness of these divine entities. Celtic Knots: The intricate design of the Trinity stitch resembles traditional Celtic knotwork, which is rich in symbolism and often represents themes such as eternity, continuity, and interconnectedness. In this context, the Trinity stitch may symbolize the eternal cycles of life, death, and rebirth, as well as the interconnectedness of all living beings. Natural Elements: Some interpretations suggest that the Trinity stitch symbolizes elements of the natural world, such as berries or seeds. In Celtic folklore, berries are often associated with fertility, abundance, and the cycle of life, making them potent symbols of growth and renewal.
    1.   Irish Moss Stitch:  The moss stitch can symbolize growth, resilience, and the ability to thrive in challenging environments, reflecting the resilience and resourcefulness of the islanders who historically wore Aran sweaters.
    1.  Zig Zag Stitch: The diamond pattern can symbolize a fisherman's net or the mesh of a lobster pot, signifying a wish for a fruitful catch and abundance at sea. Overall, the zigzag or diamond stitch in Aran sweaters reflects the deep connection to nature, livelihoods, and cultural heritage of the communities on the Aran Islands, embodying themes of prosperity, interconnectedness, and the cycles of life.
